I had a Garmin Nuvi and like the options better than the NVE-P1. The feature I miss the most is when you are searching for points of interests while driving, the NVE-P1 does not let you know which direction each POI is. Unless you are familiar with the area, you don't know if you're driving to or away from the POI. Garmin shows an arrow letting you know if the POI is on your way or not. Also Garmin scales closer when you are arriving at a turn or POI. The NVE-P1 allows you to change the map scale but does not allow automatic zooming. I like the NVE-P1 because it is integrated into my IVA-W505 and I don't have any loose wires I have to clean up every time I park.

Mine is asking for new maps which are not available from Alpine. It is a pain because the window that pops up is a little bigger and the "button" on the screen you need to push to get to the navigation page is mostly obscured by the physical edge of the screen.
